SCHA Receives Grant from The Duke Endowment to Address Workforce Problems

The three-year grant was given to SCHA to help them tackle their ongoing workforce issues.

By HFT Staff

SCHA announced a new three-year grant from The Duke Endowment to address the systemic, root-cause issues that contribute to healthcare worker burnout and turnover. The grant, awarded to the SCHA Foundation, will fund efforts to identify, test and foster adoption of fundamental workplace culture changes aimed at realigning the value proposition, improving worker well-being and engagement, and strengthening retention. The goal of this grant is to transform the work environment so that all health professionals engage in meaningful work and thrive in their calling.   

Through TDE’s grant, SCHA has a dedicated team with expanded capacity and resources to support their members in this work, including: 

  • A Care Team Wellbeing survey to gather population-specific data on workforce wellbeing, pain points and potential drivers of burnout that will guide priorities and action items for improvement (June 2023). 
  • A Learning Collaborative for hospital leaders to share ideas and test innovative solutions (third quarter 2023). 
  • A Leadership Development series to equip and empower hospital leaders to support their teams and navigate the challenges of today’s work environment (January 2024). 
  • Resources, hospital visits and organizational coaching to address the unique needs of SCHA’s members (ongoing).
